From what I've seen I'd just get a later model RS2.5 2 door and swap in an EJ25. A local doucher bought a beautiful blue 2.5RS with an EJ20 swapped a few years back. Decided he wanted a big poop loop wing on it and picked one up for 40$ or so, only it was flat black. Instead of paying someone to paint the poop loop blue, the dumbshit spends 200$ in rattlecan to flat black the car. Looked like complete dog **** when he was done with it, but what do you expect for a 16 year old kid.
That makes me want to cry and also slap that kid

The previous owner to him did the swap and it wasn't bad... the electronics was all a hackjob.. It also wasn't all that quick for the size turbo and the amount of air it was pushing. I blame Apexi and Safc for that, though.
